"A great theatre that provides entertainment throughout the year to suit all ages & tastes. It never fails to disappoint & offers a relaxing environment with a bar for those all important pre * post theatre drinks. There are often lives shows in the bar area which makes the experience more informal, intimate & relaxing. The main theatre itself is a perfect size seating with plays, comedians, live music & some local big names & talent are always to be seen at The Alley
